Book Seventy Five – The Book on Invocation



Hadith Number 317

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "For every Prophet there is one (special invocation (that will not be rejected) with which he appeals (to Allah), and I want to keep such an invocation for interceding for my followers in the Hereafter."

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): That the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "For every Prophet there is an invocation that surely will be responded by Allah," (or said), "For every Prophet there was an invocation with which he appealed to Allah, and his invocation was accepted (in his lifetime), but I kept my (this special) invocation to intercede for my followers on the Day of Resurrection."


Hadith Number 318.

Narrated by Shaddad bin Aus (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said "The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is: 'Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta, Anta Khalaqtani wa ana abduka, wa ana 'ala ahdika wa wa'dika mastata'tu, A'udhu bika min Sharri ma sana'tu, abu'u Laka bini'matika 'alaiya, wa Abu Laka bidhanbi faghfirli innahu la yaghfiru adhdhunuba illa anta." (*) The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) added. "If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it, and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise; and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it, and dies before the morning, he will be from the people of Paradise."


* O Allah, You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You create me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise (to You) as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entreat You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive sins except You.


Hadith Number 319.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): I heard Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) saying." By Allah! I ask for forgiveness from Allah and turn to Him in repentance more than seventy times a day."


Hadith Number 320.

Narrated by Al-Harith bin Suwaid: 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud (Radhi Allahu Anhu) related to us two narrations: One from the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and the other from himself, saying: A believer sees his sins as if he were sitting under a mountain which, he is afraid, may fall on him; whereas the wicked person considers his sins as flies passing over his nose and he just drives them away like this." Abu Shihab (the sub-narrator) moved his hand over his nose in illustration. (Ibn Mas'ud added): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His slave than a man who encamps at a place where his life is jeopardized, but he has his riding beast carrying his food and water. He then rests his head and sleeps for a short while and wakes to find his riding beast gone. (He starts looking for it) and suffers from severe heat and thirst or what Allah wished (him to suffer from). He then says, 'I will go back to my place.' He returns and sleeps again, and then (getting up), he raises his head to find his riding beast standing beside him."


Hadith Number 321.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His slave than anyone of you is pleased with finding his camel which he had lost in the desert."


Hadith Number 322.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to pray eleven Rakat in the late part of the night, and when dawn appeared, he would offer two Rakat and then lie on his right side till the Muadhdhin came to inform him (that the morning prayer was due).

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 323.

Narrated by Al-Bara bin 'Azib (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to me, "When you want to go to bed, perform ablution as you do for prayer, then lie down on your right side and say: 'Allahumma aslamtu wajhi ilaika, wa fauwadtu Amri ilaika wa aljatu zahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika, lamalja'a wa la manja mink a ill a ilaika. Amantu bikitabi kalladhi anzalta wa bi nabiyyikal-ladhi arsalta'. (*) If you should die then (after reciting this) you will die on the religion of Islam (i.e., as a Muslim); so let these words be the last you say (before going to bed)" While I was memorizing it, I said, "Wa birasiulikal-ladhi arsalta (in Your Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) whom You have sent).' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "No, but say: Wa binabiyyi-kalladhi arsalta (in Your Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) whom You have sent)."


* O Allah! I have surrendered my face (i.e., myself) to You, and I am under Your command (i.e., depend upon You in all my affairs) and put my trust in You expecting Your reward and fearing Your punishment. There is no fleeing from You and no refuge but with You. I believe in the Book (i.e., Qur'an) You have revealed and in Your Prophet (Muhammad) (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) You have sent.



Hadith Number 324.

Narrated by Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to bed, he would say: "Bismika amutu wa ahya." (*) and when he got up he would say:" Alhamdulillah illadhi ahyana ba'da ma amatana wa ilaihin-nushur." (**)


* With Your name I die and live.
** All thanks and Praises be to Allah Who has given us life after causing us to die (i.e., sleep); and unto Him is the Resurrection.


Hadith Number 325.

Narrated by Al-Bara bin 'Azib (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): That the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) advised a man, saying, "If you intend to lie down (i.e. go to bed), say, 'Allahumma aslamtu nafsi ilaika wa fauwadtu Amri ilaika, wa wajjahtu wajhi ilaika wa alja'tu zahri ilaika, reghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika. La malja'a wa la manja minka illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabikal-ladhi anzalta; wa nabiyyikalladhi arsalta.' And if you should die then (after reciting this before going to bed) you will die on the religion of Islam."


Hadith Number 326.

Narrated by Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to bed at night, he would put his hand under his cheek and then say, "Allahumma bismika amutu wa ahya," and when he got up, he would say, " Al-Hamdu lil-lahi al-ladhi ahyana ba'da ma amatana, wa ilaihi an-nushur." (*)

* See Foot-note of Hadith No.324.



Hadith Number 327.

Narrated by Al-Bara' bin 'Azib (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to bed, he used to sleep on his right side and then say, "Allahumma aslamtu nafsi ilaika, wa wajjahtu wajhi ilaika, wa fauwadtu Amri ilaika, wa alja'tu zahri ilaika, raghbatan wa rahbatan ilaika. La Malja'a wa la manja minka illa ilaika. Amantu bikitabika al-ladhi anzalta wa nabiyyika al-ladhi arsalta! (*) Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Whoever recites these words (before going to bed) and dies the same night, he will die on the Islamic religion (as a Muslim)."

* See Foot-note of Hadith No. 323. Except: I have surrendered myself to You and faced my face to You …………as Hadith Nos. 323 & 325.


Hadith Number 328.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): One night I slept at the house of Maimuna. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) woke up, answered the call of nature, washed his face and hands, and then slept. He got up (late at night), went to a water skin, opened the mouth thereof and performed ablution not using much water, yet he washed all the parts properly and then offered the prayer. I got up and straightened my back in order that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) might not feel that I was watching him, and then I performed the ablution, and when he got up to offer the prayer, stood on his left. He caught hold of my ear and brought me over to his right side. He offered thirteen Rak'at in all and then lay down and slept till he started blowing out his breath as he used to do when he slept. In the meantime Bilal informed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) of the approaching time for the (Fajr) prayer, and the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) offered the Fajr (Morning) prayer without performing new ablution. He used to say in his invocation, Allahumma ij'al fi qalbi nuran wa fi basari nuran, wa fi sam'i nuran, wa'an yamini nuran, wa'an yasari nuran, wa fawqi nuran, wa tahti nuran, wa amami nuran, wa khalfi nuran, waj'al li nuran." (*) Kuraib (a sub narrator) said, "I have forgotten seven other words, (which the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) mentioned in this invocation). I met a man from the offspring of Al-'Abbas and he narrated those seven things to me, mentioning, '(Let there be light in) my nerves, my flesh, my blood, my hair and my body,' and he also mentioned two other things." (**)



* O Allah! Let my heart have light, and my sight have light, and my hearing (sense) have light; and let me have light on my right, and have light on my left, and have light above me, and have light under me, and have light in front of me, and have light behind me; and let me have light.
** The brain and the bones.

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 329.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) got up at night to offer the night prayer, he used to say: "Allahumma laka-l-hamdu; Anta nuras-samawati wal ardi wa man fihinna. Wa laka-l-hamdu; Anta qaiyim as-samawati wal ardi wa man fihinna. Wa laka-l-hamdu; Anta-l-,haqqun, wa wa'daka haqqun, wa qauluka haqqun, wa liqauka haqqun, wal-jannatu haqqun, wannaru haqqun, was-sa atu haqqun, wan-nabiyyuna huqqun, Mahammadun haqqun, Allahumma laka aslamtu, wa Alaika tawakkaltu, wa bika amantu, wa ilaika anabtu, wa bika Khasamtu, wa ilaika hakamtu, faghfirli ma qaddamtu wa ma akh-khartu, wa ma asrartu, wa ma a'lantu. Anta al-muqaddimu, wa anta al-mu-'akhkhiru. La ilaha il-la anta (or La ilaha ghairuka)" (*)


*O Allah! All Praises are for You; You are the Light of the heavens and the earth and whatever is in them, and all Praises are for You. You are the One Who looks after the Heavens and the Earth and whatever is in them, and all Praises are for You; You are the Truth, and Your Promise is true, and Your sayings are true, and Hell is true, and the Hour is true, and the Prophets are true, and Muhammad (Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) is true. O Allah! I surrender myself to You, and I depend on You, and I believe in You, and I turn in repentance to You, and in Your Cause I fight, and with Your orders I rule, so please forgive my past and my future sins and whatever I have done in secret, and whatever I have done in public. You are the One Who makes the things go before and You are the One Who delays them. None has the right to be worshipped but You ( or: None has the right to be worshipped other than You).



Hadith Number 330.

Narrated by 'Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Fatima complained about the blisters on her hand because of using a mill-stone. She went to ask the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) for servant, but she did not find him (at home) and had to inform 'Aisha of her need. When he came, 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) informed him about it. Ali (Radhi Allahu Anhu) added: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to us when we had gone to our beds. When I was going to get up, he said, "'Stay in your places," and sat between us, till I felt the coolness of the feet on my chest. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then said, "Shall I not tell you of a thing which is better for you than a servant? When you (both) go to your beds, say 'Allahu Akbar' thirty-four times, and 'Subhan Allah' thirty-three times, 'Alhamdulillah' thirty-three times, for that is better for you than a servant." Ibn Sirin said, "Subhan Allah' (is to be said for) thirty-four times."[/color]


Hadith Number 331.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): Whenever Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to bed, he used to blow on his hands while reciting the Mu'auwidhat (i.e. Surah Al-Falaq and Surah-an-Nas, 113 and 114) and then pass his hands over his body.


Hadith Number 332.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "When anyone of you go to bed, he should shake out his bed with the inside of his waist sheet, for he does not know what has come on to it after him, and then he should say: 'Bismika Rabbi wada'tu Janbi wa bika arfa'uhu, In amsakta nafsi farhamha wa in arsaltaha fahfazha bima tahfazu bihi ibadakas-salihin." (*)



* O my Lord! In Your Name I put my side over this bed and with Your Name I will lift it up therefrom. If You take my soul, bestow mercy on it, and if You release it, protect it as You protect Your righteous slaves.

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 333.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "When it is the last third of the night, our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, descends every night to the heaven of the world and says, 'Is there anyone who invokes Me (demand anything from Me), that I may respond to his invocation; Is there anyone who asks Me for something that I may give (it to) him; Is there anyone who asks My forgiveness that I may forgive him?'"


Hadith Number 334.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to the lavatory, he used to say: "Allahumma Inni a'udhu bika minal-khubthi Wal khaba'ith." (*)


* O Allah! I seek refuge with You from the bad and evil things.


Hadith Number 335.

Narrated by Shaddad bin Aus (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The most superior way of asking for forgiveness from Allah is: 'Allahumma anta Rabbi la ilaha illa anta. Khalaqtani wa ana 'abduka, wa ana 'ala 'ahdika wa Wa'dika mastata'tu abu'u Laka bi ni 'matika wa abu'u Laka bidhanbi; faghfirli fa'innahu la yaghfiru-dh-dhunuba illa anta. Audhu bika min sharri ma sana'tu.' (*) If somebody recites this invocation during the night, and if he should die then, he will go to Paradise (or he will be from the people of Paradise). And if he recites it in the morning, and if he should die on the same day, he will have the same fate."

*O Allah, You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You create me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise (to You) as much as I can. I acknowledge before You, all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and confess to You all my sins, so please forgive them, as no-one can forgive sins except You. And I seek refuge in You from all the evil I have done.


Hadith Number 336.

Narrated by Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) intended to go to bed, he would recite: "Bismika Allahumma amutu wa ahya (With Your name, O Allah, I die and I live). " And when he woke up from his sleep, he would say: "Alhamdulillah illadhi ahyana ba'da ma amatana; wa ilaihi an-nushur (All the Praises are for Allah Who has made us alive after He made us die (sleep) and unto Him is the Resurrection) ."


Hadith Number 337.

Narrated by Abu Dhar (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Whenever the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) lay on his bed, he used to say: "Allahumma bismika amutu wa ahya," and when he woke up he would say: "Alhamdulillah illadhi ahyana ba'da ma an atana, wa ilaihi an-nushur." (*)

* See Hadith 336.


Hadith Number 338.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Amr (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), "Teach me an invocation with which I may invoke (Allah) in my prayer." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Say: Allahumma inni zalamtu nafsi zulman kathiran wala yaghfirudh-dhunuba illa anta, Faghfirli maghfiratan min indika war-hamni, innaka antal Ghafur-Rahim." (*)


* O Allah! I have done great injustice to myself, and there is nobody who forgives sins except You, so please forgive me with forgiveness from You, and be merciful to me, as You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.


Hadith Number 339.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Verse: 'Neither say your prayer aloud, nor say it in a low tone.' (Surah Al-Isra' 17: 110) was revealed as regards invocation.


Hadith Number 340.

Narrated by 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We used to say in the prayer: 'As Salam be on Allah, As-Salam be on so-and so.' So one day the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to us, "Allah Himself is As-Salam; when anyone of you sits during his prayer, he should say: 'At-tahiyyatu-lillahi,' up to 'As-Salihin,' (All the compliments are for Allah... righteous people) for when he recites this, then he says his Salam to all the righteous people present in the heavens and on the earth. Then he should say, 'I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam),' and then he can select whatever he likes to celebrate (Allah's) Praises."

As Salamu Alaikum


Hadith Number 341.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The people said, "O Allah's Messenger! The rich people have got the highest degrees of prestige and the permanent pleasures (in this life and the life to come in the Hereafter)." He said, "How is that?" They said, "The rich pray as we pray, and strive in Allah's Cause as we do, and spend from their surplus wealth in charity, while we have no wealth (to spend likewise)." He said, "Shall I not tell you a thing, by doing which, you will catch up with those who are ahead of you and supersede those who will come after you; and nobody will be able to do such a good deed as you do except the one who does the same (deed as you do). That deed is to recite 'Subhan Allah ten times, and [color=violet] ‘Alhamdulillahc3 ten times, and 'Allahu Akbar' ten times after every prayer."


Hadith Number 342.

Narrated by Warrad : (The freed slave of Al-Mughira bin Shu'ba) Al-Mughira wrote to Muawiya bin Abu Sufyan (Radhi Allahu Anhuma) that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to say at the end of every prayer after the Taslim, "La ilaha illa-l-lahu wahdahu la sharika lahu; lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd, wahuwa 'ala kulli shai'n qadir. Allahumma la mani'a Lima a taita, wa la mu'ta Lima mana'ta, wa la yanfa'u dhal-jaddu minkal-jadd. (*)


* None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the One Who has no partner. All the Kingdom is for Him, and all the Praises are for Him, and He is Omnipotent. O Allah! There is no-one who can withhold what You give. And there is no-one who can give what You withhold, and no lucky person can gain anything good or avoid bad through his luck, against Your Will and Decisions.


Hadith Number 343.

Narrated by Salama bin Al-Akwa' (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We went out with the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to Khaibar. A man among the people said, "O 'Amir! Will you please recite to us some of your poetic verses?" So 'Amir got down and started chanting among them, saying, "By Allah! Had it not been for Allah, we would not have been guided." 'Amir also said other poetic verses which I do not remember. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Who is this (camel) driver?" The people said, "He is 'Amir bin Al-Akwa'," He said, "May Allah bestow His Mercy on him." A man from the People said, "O Allah's Messenger! Would that you let us enjoy his company longer." (*) When the people (Muslims) lined up, the battle started, and 'Amir was struck with his own sword (by chance) by himself and died. In the evening, the people made a large number of fires (for cooking meals). Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "What is this fire? What are you making the fire for?" They said, "For cooking the meat of donkeys." He said, "Throw away what is in the pots and break the pots!" A man said, "O Allah's Prophet! May we throw away what is in them and wash them?" He said, "Never mind, you may do so." (See Hadith No. 509, Book 59).

* If the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) made such an invocation for somebody, it was an indication that that person would be martyred. i.e. ( May Allah bestow His Mercy on him).


Hadith Number 344.

Narrated by Ibn Abi Aufa (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Whenever a man brought his alms to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would say, "O Allah! Bestow Your Blessing upon the family of so-and-so." When my father came to him (with his alms), he said, "O Allah! Bestow Your Blessings upon the family of Abi Aufa."


Hadith Number 345.

Narrated by Jarir (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to me. "Will you relieve me from Dhi-al-Khalasa? " Dhi-al-Khalasa was an idol which the people used to worship and it was called Al-Ka'ba al Yamaniyya. I said, "O Allah's Messenger ! I am a man who can't sit firm on horses." So he stroked my chest (with his hand) and said, "O Allah! Make him firm and make him a guiding and well-guided man." So I went out with fifty (men) from my tribe of Ahmas. (The sub-narrator, Sufyan, quoting Jarir, perhaps said, "I went out with a group of men from my nation.") and came to Dhi-al-Khalasa and burnt it, and then came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Messenger! I have not come to you till I left it like a camel with a skin disease." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then invoked good upon Ahmas and their cavalry (fighters).


Hadith Number 346.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Um Sulaim said to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) "Anas is your servant." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Allah! increase his wealth and offspring, and bless (for him) what ever you give him."


Hadith Number 347.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) heard a man reciting (the Qur'an) in the Masjid. He said," May Allah bestow His Mercy on him, as he made me remember such and-such Verse which I had missed in such-and-such Surah."


Hadith Number 348.

Narrated by 'Abdullah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) divided something (among the Muslims) and distributed the shares (of the booty). A man said, "This division has not been made to please Allah." When I informed the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) about it, he became so furious that I noticed the signs of anger on his face and he then said, "May Allah bestow His Mercy on Musa, for he was hurt with more than this, yet he remained patient."


Hadith Number 349.

Narrated by 'Ikrima: Ibn 'Abbas said (Radhi Allahu Anhuma), "Preach to the people once a week, and if you won't, then preach them twice, but if you want to preach more, then let it be three times (a week only), and do not make the people fed-up with this Qur'an. If you come to some people who are engaged in a talk, don't start interrupting their talk by preaching, lest you should cause them to be bored. You should rather keep quiet, and if they ask you, then preach to them at the time when they are eager to hear what you say. And avoid the use of rhymed prose in invocation for I noticed that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and his companions always avoided it."


Hadith Number 350.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "When anyone of you appeal to Allah for something, he should ask with determination and should not say, 'O Allah, if You wish, give me.', for nobody can force Allah to do something against His Will.


Hadith Number 351.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) : Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "None of you should say: 'O Allah, forgive me if You wish; O Allah, be merciful to me if You wish,' but he should always appeal to Allah with determination, for nobody can force Allah to do something against His Will."

Hadith Number 352.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The invocation of anyone of you is granted (by Allah) if he does not show impatience (by saying, "I invoked Allah but my request has not been granted.")


Hadith Number 353.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): While the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was delivering a sermon on a Friday, a man stood up and said, "O Allah's Messenger! Invoke Allah to bless us with rain." (The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) invoked Allah for rain.) So, the sky became overcast and it started raining till one could hardly reach one's home. It kept on raining till the next Friday when the same man or another man got up and said (to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)), "Invoke Allah to withhold the rain from us, for we have been drowned (with heavy rain)." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "O Allah! Let it rain around us and not on us." Then the clouds started dispersing around Al-Madinah and rain ceased to fall on the people of Al-Madinah.


Hadith Number 354.

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin Zaid (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went out to this Musalla (praying place) to offer the prayer of Istisqa.' He invoked Allah for rain and then faced the Qiblah and turned his Rida' (upper garment) inside out.


Hadith Number 355.

Narrated by Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to invoke Allah at the time of distress, saying, "La ilaha illal-lahu al-'Azim, al-Halim, La ilaha illal-lahu Rabbu-s-samawati wal-ard wa Rabbu-l-arsh il-azim. " (*)

* None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Majestic, the Most Forbearing. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, and the Lord of the Tremendous Throne.



Hadith Number 357.

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to say at a time of distress, "La ilaha illal-lahu Rabbul-l-'arsh il-'azim, La ilaha illallahu Rabbu-s-samawati wa Rabbu-l-ard, Rabbu-l-'arsh-il-Karim." (*)



* None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Majestic, the Most Forbearing. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and the Lord of the Tremendous Throne.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to seek refuge with Allah from the difficult moment of a calamity and from being overtaken by destruction and from being destined to an evil end, and from the malicious joy of enemies. Sufyan said, "This narration contained three items only, but I added one. I do not know which one that was." (*)

* From other sources it seems that the expression 'the malicious joy of enemies' is the item added by Sufyan.



Hadith Number 359.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): When Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was healthy, he used to say, "No Prophet dies till he is shown his place in Paradise, and then he is given the option (to live or die)." So when death approached him (during his illness), and while his head was on my thigh, he became unconscious for a while, and when he recovered, he fixed his eyes on the ceiling and said, "O Allah! (Let me join) the Highest Companions (see Qur'an Surah An-Nisa' 4::69)," I said, "So, he does not choose us." Then I realized that it was the application of the statement he used to relate to us when he was healthy. So that was his last utterance (before he died), i.e. "O Allah! (Let me join) the Highest Companions."


Hadith Number 360.

Narrated by Qais: I came to Khabbab (Radhi Allahu Anhu) who had been branded with seven brands(*) and he said, "Had Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) not forbidden us to invoke (Allah) for death, I would have invoked (Allah) for it."

Let me live as long as life is better for me, and take my life if death is better for me.'"

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) replied, "Your father is Hudhaifa." And then 'Umar got up and said, "We accept Allah as our Lord, and Islam as (our) religion, and Muhammad as (our) Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam); and we seek refuge with Allah from the afflictions." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, " I have never seen a day like today in its good and its evil for Paradise and the Hell Fire were displayed in front of me, till I saw them just beyond this wall." Qatada, when relating this Hadith, used to mention the following Verse:

When we reached a place called As-Sahba', he prepared (a special meal called) Hais, and asked me to invite the men who (came and) ate, and that was the marriage banquet given on the consummation of his marriage to her. Then he proceeded till the mountain of Uhud appeared, whereupon he said, "This mountain loves us and we love it." When he approached Al-Madinah, he said, "O Allah! I make the land between its (i.e., Al-Madinah's) two mountains a sanctuary, as the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) Ibrahim made Makkah a sanctuary. O Allah!

He said, 'No.' I said, 'Then 1/2 of it?' He said, 'Even 1/3 is too much, for, to leave your inheritors wealthy is better than to leave them in poverty, begging from people. And (know that) whatever you spend in Allah's Cause, you will get reward for it, even for the morsel of food which you put in your wife's mouth.' I said, 'O Allah's Messenger! Will I be left behind my companions (in Makkah)?' He said, 'If you remain behind, whatever good deed you will do for Allah's Sake, will raise and upgrade you to a higher position (in Allah's Sight). May be you will live longer so that some people may benefit by you, and some e others (pagans) may get harmed by you. [color=olive] O Allah!

O Allah, if You know that this matter is good for me in my religion, my livelihood, and for my life in the Hereafter (or said: For my present and future life), then do it for me; And if You know that this matter is evil (not good) for me in my religion, my livelihood, and for my life in the Hereafter (or said: For my present and future life), then keep it away from me and take me away from it, and choose what is good fro me wherever it is, and please me with it.

Say: La haul a walaquwata illa billah, for it is one of the treasures of Paradise." Or he said, "Shall I tell you a word which is one of the treasures of Paradise?

Ayibuna ta'ibuna 'abiduna lirabbina hamidun. Sadaqa-l-lahu wa'dahu, wa nasara'abdahu wa hazama-l-ahzaba wahdahu." (*)

He said, "Two men came to me and one of them sat at my head and the other at my feet, and one of them asked his companion, 'What is wrong with this man?' The latter replied, 'He is under the effect of magic.' The former asked, 'Who has worked magic on him?' The latter replied, 'Labid bin Al-A'sam.' The former asked, 'With what did he work the magic?' The latter replied, 'With a comb and the hair, which are stuck to the comb, and the skin of pollen of a date-palm tree.' The former asked, 'Where is that?' The latter replied, 'It is in Dharwan.' Dharwan was a well in the dwelling place of the (tribe of) Bani Zuraiq. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) went to that well and returned to 'Aisha, saying, 'By Allah, the water (of the well) was as red as the infusion of Hinna, and the date-palm trees look like the heads of devils.' 'Aisha added, Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came to me and informed me about the well. I asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), 'O Allah's Messenger, why didn't you take out the skin of pollen?' He said, 'As for me, Allah has cured me and I hated to draw the attention of the people to such evil (which they might learn and harm others with).'"

Narrated Hisham's father: 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha) said, "Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was bewitched, so he invoked Allah repeatedly requesting Him to cure him from that magic)." Hisham then narrated the above narration. (See Hadith No. 658, Book 71)


Hadith Number 401.

Narrated by Ibn Abi Aufa (Radhi Allahu Anhuma): Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked for Allah's wrath upon the Ahzab (confederates), saying, "O Allah, the Revealer of the Holy Book, and the One swift at reckoning! Defeat the confederates; Defeat them and shake them."


Hadith Number 402.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) : When the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Sami' al-lahu Liman hamidah (Allah heard him who sent his praises to Him) " in the last Rak'ah of the 'Isha' prayer, he used to invoke Allah, saying, "O Allah! Save 'Aiyash bin Abi Rabi'a; O Allah! Save Al-Walid bin Al-Walid; O Allah! Save the weak people among the believers; O Allah! Be hard on the Tribe of Mudar; O Allah! Inflict years of drought upon them like the years (of drought) of the Prophet Yusuf."


Hadith Number 403.

Narrated by Anas (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sent a Sariya (an army detachment) consisting of men called Al-Qurra', and all of them were martyred. I had never seen the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) so sad over anything as he was over them. So he said Qunut (invocation in the prayer) for one month in the Fajr prayer, invoking for Allah's wrath upon the tribe of 'Usaiya, and he used to say, "The people of 'Usaiya have disobeyed Allah and His Messenger."


Hadith Number 404.

Narrated by 'Aisha (Radhi Allahu Anha): The Jews used to greet the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) by saying, "As-Samu 'Alaika (i.e., death be upon you), so I understood what they said, and I said to them, "As-Samu 'alaikum wal-la'na (i.e. Death and Allah's Curse be upon you)." (*) The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Be gentle and calm, O 'Aisha, as Allah likes gentleness in all affairs." I said, "O Allah's Prophet! Didn't you hear what they said?" He said, "Didn't you hear me answering them back by saying, 'Alaikum (i.e., the same be upon you)?"

* Note the similarity between 'As-Samu' (death) and 'As-Salamu' (peace).


Hadith Number 405.

Narrated by 'Ali bin Abi Talib (Radhi Allahu Anhu): We were in the company of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) on the day (of the battle) of Al-Khandaq (the Trench). The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "May Allah fill their (the infidels') graves and houses with fire, as they have kept us so busy that we could not offer the middle prayer till the sun had set; and that prayer was the 'Asr prayer."


Hadith Number 406.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): At-Tufail bin 'Amr came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and said, "O Allah's Messenger! The tribe of Daus has disobeyed (Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam)) and refused (to embrace Islam), therefore, invoke Allah's wrath for them." The people thought that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would invoke Allah's wrath for them, but he said, "O Allah! Guide the tribe Of Daus and let them come to us."


Hadith Number 407.

Narrated by Abu Musa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to invoke Allah with the following invocation: 'Rabbi-ghfir-li Khati 'ati wa jahli wa israfi fi amri kullihi, wa ma anta a'lamu bihi minni. Allahumma ighfirli khatayaya wa 'amdi, wa jahli wa jiddi, wa kullu dhalika'indi. Allahumma ighrifli ma qaddamtu wa ma akhartu wa ma asrartu wa ma a'lantu. Anta-l-muqaddimu wa anta-l-mu'akh-khiru, wa anta 'ala kulli shai'in qadir." (*)




* O my Lord! Forgive my sins and ignorance and my exceeding the limits (boundaries) of righteousness in all my deeds and what You know better than I. O Allah! Forgive my mistakes, those done intentionally or out of my ignorance (without) or with seriousness, and I confess that all such mistakes are done by me. O Allah! Forgive my sins of the past and of the future which I did openly or secretly. You are the One Who makes the things go before, and You are the One Who delays them, and You are the Omnipotent.

He replied, 'The same on you.'" 'Aishah (Radhi Allahu Anha) said to them, "Death be upon you, and may Allah curse you and shower His wrath upon you!" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Be gentle and calm, O 'Aishah! Be gentle and beware of being harsh and of saying evil things." She said, "Didn't you hear what they said?"

Narrated by Abu Musa (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "The example of the one who celebrates the Praises of his Lord (Allah) in comparison to the one who does not celebrate the Praises of his Lord, is that of a living creature compared to a dead one."


Hadith Number 417.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah 's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "Allah has some angels who look for those who celebrate the Praises of Allah on the roads and paths. And when they find some people celebrating the Praises of Allah, they call each other, saying, "Come to the object of your pursuit.' " He added, "Then the angels encircle them with their wings up to the sky of the world." He added. "(after those people celebrated the Praises of Allah, and the angels go back), their Lord, asks them (those angels)... though He knows better than them... 'What do My slaves say?' The angels reply, 'They say: Subhan Allah, Allahu Akbar, and Alhamdulillah, Allah then says 'Did they see Me?' The angels reply, 'No! By Allah, they didn't see You.'

Allah says, How it would have been if they saw Me?' The angels reply, 'If they saw You, they would worship You more devoutly and celebrate Your Glory more deeply, and declare Your freedom from any resemblance to anything more often.' Allah says (to the angels), 'What do they ask Me for?' The angels reply, 'They ask You for Paradise.' Allah says (to the angels), 'Did they see it?' The angels say, 'No! By Allah, O Lord! They did not see it.' Allah says, How it would have been if they saw it?' The angels say, 'If they saw it, they would have greater covetousness for it and would seek it with greater zeal and would have greater desire for it.' Allah says, 'From what do they seek refuge?' The angels reply, 'They seek refuge from the (Hell) Fire.' Allah says, 'Did they see it?' The angels say, 'No By Allah, O Lord! They did not see it.' Allah says, ‘How it would have been if they saw it?' The angels say, 'If they saw it they would flee from it with the extreme fleeing and would have extreme fear from it.' Then Allah says, 'I make you witnesses that I have forgiven them."' Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) added, "One of the angels would say, 'There was so-and-so amongst them, and he was not one of them, but he had just come for some need.' Allah would say, 'These are those people whose companions will not be reduced to misery.'"


Hadith Number 418.

Narrated by Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari (Radhi Allahu Anhu): The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) started ascending a high place or hill. A man (amongst his companions) ascended it and shouted in a loud voice, "La ilaha illal-lahu wallahu Akbar." (*) (At that time) Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was riding his mule. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, "You are not calling upon a deaf or an absent one." and added, "O Abu Musa (or, O 'Abdullah)! Shall I tell you a sentence from the treasure of Paradise?" I said, "Yes." He said, "La haul a wala quwwata illa billah."

Hadith Number 419.

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (Radhi Allahu Anhu): Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever believes in their meanings and acts accordingly, will enter Paradise; and Allah is Witr (one) and loves 'the Witr' (i.e., odd numbers).


Hadith Number 420.

Narrated by Shaqiq: While we were waiting for 'Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) (Radhi Allahu Anhu), Yazid bin Muawiya came. I said (to him), "Will you sit down?" He said, "No, but I will go into the house (of Ibn Mas'ud) and let your companion (Ibn Mas'ud) come out to you; and if he should not (come out), I will come out and sit (with you)." Then 'Abdullah came out, holding the hand of Yazid, addressed us, saying, "I know that you are assembled here, but the reason that prevents me from coming out to you, is that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) used to preach to us at intervals during the days, lest we should become bored."
